magnificent bastard – ask the mb the great tie width debate
SCOTT STERNBERG: “A skinnier tie just feels of-the-moment right now….And there’s less material, so there’s less potential for a color or pattern to feel garish or offensive.”
TOM FORD: “There is something a bit meager and uptight about a skinny tie and jacket…I think that accentuating the natural V of a man’s body makes men look more masculine, less boyish, and in general more powerful.”
AT LEFT: Both designers put their theories into practice. Ford looks classically masculine. Sternberg radiates of-the-moment inoffensiveness. The choice is yours to make.
